. looks like we won't see any changes in the short term there. but overall the big picture sending in some cloud cover. this is all due to the big high that has encompassed the nation with that very, very hot, sticky weather. the flow around it allowing for the moisture to move in to the eastern portion of the bay area. and that includes the sierra nevada. so we will look for the thunderstorm activity from the northern and southern sierra, in fact the flash flood watch throughout the day today. we saw the thunderstorms yesterday. so if you are traveling today or tomorrow, be aware of that. we can see some very heavy downpours from time to time in the mountains, the foothills. and by tomorrow, sunday, the focus shifts closer to home. really the south bay and portions of monterey. so not only is slight chance of a thunderstorm, but more likely the high clouds, the mid-level clouds and maybe the muggy feel to the air here as a piece of energy here drifts to the west. so this afternoon we will see more moisture in the sierra, the spine of the sierra so that's going to be the setup for the week

? >> reporter: i think it's a step in the right direction in terms of reaching a compromise. the big question remains while we have heard that harry reid signed off on the deal, where do republicans -- the key republican negotiators in this whole deal, where do they stand on the issue? in the house as well as in the senate. well, we're still obviously looking to get guidance on that. we have heard from one top senate republican leadership aide who said at least -- at least right now they're not there yet saying the agreement is not done and that they're still working on it. so it seems that while harry reid, he's onboard. seems at least for the part of senate republicans, seems there needs to be a little more work to be done before -- to get them onboard as well. >> okay. a little more work. do you have any idea about the timing? or we just don't know? it happens when it happens? >> to be honest, i don't think anyone really knows about the timing. this story has changed from moment to moment. it's very fluid. it's always the question, i promise you, it's the question that we've been asking ev

have a big hole to fill. each new job, that was created last month is good news for the people who are back at work. and for the families that they take care of. and for the communities that they are a part of. but, our economy as a whole just isn't producing nearly enough jobs for everybody who's looking. we have always known that we'd have ups and downs on the way back from this recession. over the past few months the economy has experienced some tough headwinds from the natural disasters to spikes in gas prices to state and local budget cuts that have cost tens of thousands of cops and firefighters and teachers their jobs. the problems in greece and in europe along with uncertainty over whether the debt limit here in the united states will be raised have also made businesses hesitant to invest more aggressively. the economic challenges we face were not created overnight, and they are not going to be solved overnight. but the american people expect us to act on every single good idea that is out there. i read letter after letter from folks hit hard from this economy, and none of

. if you are going to rule out medicare now and say yeah, we are going to make big cuts but rule out medicare. that means democrats are focusing on 10%, discretionary spending that is our investments, r & d, education, infrastructure. the things we need to double and triple down on. the things we can afford to do in trying to catch up with china if we take care of the long-term structural debt on taxes, on health care and these other issues. >> yeah, we talked about the fact our health care system is at least 50% more expensive procedure by procedure than any other place in the world. we have this grip on a lot of the health care sector. we need health care reform. this is obvious. but it's been obvious for years. they don't do it on either side. >> coming up, connecticut governor dannel mall low. >> he's going to yell at you. >> i think he's in for a fight, yeah. yeah. >> mika is mad. she's not putting up with it anymore. >> this is incredible. sexual assault allegations against strauss-kahn. why it's on the verge of collapse. >> he was in yonkers at the time. come on. >>> first, he
that the defense attorney brought out. and she focused in and brought the real big picture. and the real big picture is, what does the totality of the evidence show? it shows a girl that did not like her life. had two options. one option was to be a mom. or go back to her single life. she chose to sacrifice her baby. i think the jury will see the arguments of baez and what he is looking for is not acquittal but maybe one or two on the jury to decide with them so he can have a hang or hold out and possibly a hung jury. >>greg: the legal panel will be with us through the hour. plus, live updates from the courthouse in orlando and more on the closing arguments from both the prosecution and the defense. thanks to the venture card from capital one, we get double miles on every purchase, so me and my lads earned arip to san francisco twice as fast we get double miles every time we use our card... i'll take these two... ...no matter what we're buying. ...and all of those. and since double miles add up fast, we can bring the whole gang! it's hard to beat double miles! whoa dude.

just another decision to push big problems down the road? let's begin there with fareed zakaria. you would think the possibility that the united states would default on its obligations for the first time in history you would think would bring a grown-up conversation to washington, it would be that. but? >> it's truly bizarre, john, because what it seems that republicans are not focussing on is the fact that were the united states to default, were there to be a danger it would default, america's interests costs would go up dramatically. if we were to, say, have a 1% rise in our borrowing costs, that markets got scared that we were not going to make good on our payments and our borrowing costs went up 1%, that's $150 billion more that we have to spend every year on our interest payments on our debt. and this is very important. if we do this for a week or two and still resolve things once markets get scared, it takes a long time for those interest rates to come down. just look at any case in history where there has been a default. once you have a crisis, even if you settle your book, yo
news for the administration. here is the big question, where are the jobs? you see jobs started to go up in a better rate, but the last two months, very bleak. consider this, even if the economy added 125,000 jobs a month, 125,000 jobs a month, between now and the election next year, that would keep the unemployment rate flat lined, right around 9.2%. the president, if he wants the rate to go down needs dramatic improvement in the jobs climate and need it is quickly. one more here, pretty sobering if you look at it the government 14.1le million unemployed, half of them long term. add in those underemployed, people who can only find a part-time job, about 22.7 million people hurt and hurt badly by this economy. let's dig deeper, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and in new york where traders on wall street literally gasped when the report was released. jess, to you first, hard enough for the president, facing re-election, the unemployment rate is stubborn in the middle of this, trying to get a deficit reduction deal. you have reaction to the jobs report, release this, this
to meet with the president if he is really willing to do something big for the country. >> all right. again, it's ask obama. that's the hash tag you are supposed to use. these tweets, thousands and thousands of them are pouring in. it gets going in an hour. these are all you are seeing in real time behind me right now. again, the president responding to your questions, and one coming in on twitter at his twitter town hall at the top of the next hour. >>> this hour's sound affect is the first victory of the 2018 winter olympics. the decision on where to hold them. >> the international olympic committee has the honor of announcing that the winter olympic games in 2018 are awarded to the city of -- pyengchang. >> well, after losing the 2010 games and the 2014 games to russia, and they pulled ahead to play post to the 2018 games. south korea never hosted a winter olympics. and seoul had the games in '88. >>> other stories we're keeping a close eye on. a facebook event that is expected at any moment and expected to be awesome. room nuumors have been swirlinge internet, to a video chat ser
before the debt ceiling is raised. a notion savaged this week by a big-name senate republican. >> it's unfair, it's bizarro. >> reporter: savaged today by senate democrats. >> this is the most outrageous suggestive heard. >> speaker boehner should just give it up. >> but the republican senate leader backed the speaker. >> democrats are out bragging about how they're going to prolong the crisis instead of doing the hard work of trying to solve it. and that includes the president. >> reporter: president obama is not bragging. he's begging for no default. >> if we don't come to an agreement, we could lose our country's aaa credit rating. not because we didn't have the capacity to pay our bills. we do. but because we didn't have a aaa political system to match. >> reporter: house republicans set a vote on the boehner plan tonight. >> here we go again, my friends. >> reporter: senate democrats plan to kill the boehner plan. three days left. saturday, sunday, monday. in reality, especially in the senate, the two political parties really are not that far apart on the key issue, spending. th
's the big question, right? >> looking at the influence of the freshmen today, in general they believe and have very involved local voters to back them up that they were elected in 2010 with a mission to, reign in big government, specifically big government spending, and this debt ceiling debate fits right into that. here's more from one freshman tea partier. >> it would allow the debt ceiling to go up, but only if we had significant cuts, statutory caps and balanced budget amendment and there's a growing movement with that. we met with leadership, we met with majority leader eric cantor and were trying to impress upon them that we need to be for something as republicans, we need to define what we're for. >> senator paul says this is a fight, quote, too important to give up. jon. jon: what kind of influence do the new members have, though? >> well, republicans are in the minority and the senate, so less there, but in the house they're in the majority and tea partiers, or those who agree with the tea party on fiscal issues, among the 87 how freshmen have not been shy about staking their
for the tabloids. host: what about the broadsheets? guest: it is known occasionally. there was a big scandal about mp's expenses last year, which came from information that is the voice of -- information that is the will serve and got on a computer disk. my newspaper paid for that because they thought it was in the public interest. that is a rare instance of a broadsheet paper paying for information. for the tabloids, we call it checkbook journalism. salacious information about a night out on the town with a celebrity or pop star or encounters with celebrities. that culture has grown and become more insidious over the past 20 or 30 years. host: how would you describe, to help put it in perspective -- by the way, we will put the numbers on the screen as we continue this conversation about the phone hacking investigation in the u.k. prime minister cameron spoke this morning at a problem about it and we carry that live on c- span -- spoke this morning in parliament about it and we carry that live on c-span2. we carry rupert murdoch and rebekah brooks yesterday and we will speak about that. how do you
! why is he introducing it? >> i think the president is acting in good faith. i think he wants a big deal. i think he will take cuts that contracts won't want and take taxes. because his presidency and the future of the country -- he believes -- [everyone talking at once] >> socialistic. that what you're saying. >> vaguely socialistic, yes. >> when they came out with the report he said -- >> what is that report? >> that's a report that deals with the long-term deficit problems of this country. >> they recommend taxation, do they not. >> they had a whole series of recommendations, and the president said i will stand by what they did, except they're still waiting for him to stand by them. >> he's never taken it seriously, in not in his budget, not in his budget state, know when bowl simpson came city. not when they wanted a clean debt limit increase. so that he is winning a debate over the fiscal future of the country is astonishing! and. >> but he's keeping something else off page one! what is it? >> this is a genuine. >> the unemployment problem? it doesn't even figure in this. >> co

decided to engage in just nothing but blatant character assassination. and that, i think, was the big problem in this case. they didn't have -- and they had a sequestered jury. and apparently the kind of guilt by osmosis that they would have seen if they weren't sequestered didn't seep into that jury room. instead of people saying that this is a tragedy, because anytime that you have a little girl who dies, that's a tragedy. to me is absolutely inexplicable. if you don't know what happened, how can you convict somebody beyond a reasonable doubt and put them to death? i mean, it makes no sense whatsoever. maybe it's good for iran or north corey ca but not in america. >> i'm going to ask everyone to stick around. we'll come back to you shortly. let us know what you think. we're on facebook or follow me on twitter @ john king cnn. i'll be tweeting tonight. up next, more what the defense did. how it did for their client with a reputation for truth telling -- in that vein we'll highlight some of the many statements casey anthony made that were simply not true, including an imaginary nanny.
amendment rights. >> a big part of it is how well you're doing it. i did a survey and i asked people who are voters whether they watch fox news or not and i found that 67% of republicans watch fox news several times a week or more. that you knew. but 54% of independents watched it several times a week or more. and 21% of democrats watched it several times a week or more. so there really is an effort here to try to demonize a source of information. and, you know, you guys don't make this stuff up. the stuff you're reporting is stuff that's happening. you know, pugh research did a study during the last campaign that as far as i'm concerned is definitive. they looked at the fox news stuff. not like we're doing now which is opinion. but the news part. the 6:00 and 7:00 news broadcast. and they did the number of seconds that were devoted to positive and negative coverage of each candidate. and the only network that came close to parody between positive and negative on obama and on mccain was fox news. the others were skewed four and five to 1 negative on mccain and positive on obama. >> spea
it. and that in a nutshell is why a lot of big, moderate players in this town led by president obama do like this bipartisan scheme. with 13 days until possible default, all eyes are on the gang of six senators, three republicans and three democrats. they met today with house democrats. can they craft a deficit deal that can pass congress? lawmakers ask gang of six democrat kent conrad. >> how does this work? where is it headed? >> reporter: like the deficit commission, like president obama, the gang of six has a plan that's balanced. gang of six democrat dick durbin. >> it does it by putting everything on the table. everything. spending cuts, entitlement programs and revenue. >> reporter: $3 trillion in spending cuts, including cuts in medicare and the like. $1 trillion in tax hikes. but not on most americans. >> we're actually reducing tax rates, both on the individual side and the corporate side. >> reporter: that's a move to win over conservatives, like house gop leader eric cantor. >> and so i don't think that raising taxes, increasing tax rates, is the answer. certainly not in
to have a big, serious debate about what we believe is the right way to guide america forward and when the future --win the future. i am confident i and i am confident that we will win the debate because we have the better approach. but in the meantime, for everyone's a while we can sit down and do something that actually helps the american people right now. >> you consider raising the debt ceiling fairly routine, but at this point is economic, garden. how can you get any agreement with congress? >> -- it is economic armageddon. how can you get any agreements with congress? >> i will keep working hard on it and i hope that this debate has focused the american people's attention a bit more and will subject congress to scrutiny. i think increasingly, the american people will say to themselves, you know what, if a party or politician is constantly taking the position constantly taking the position of, "my way or the highway ," constantly been locked into ideologically rigid positions, then we will remember that at the polls. it is cumulative. the american people are not paying attention t

't mean anything in the big picture other than being very successful in getting the democratic senate and the white house to start talking about spending reductions as opposed to just raising the debt ceiling, so we have been successful that way. but ultimately because the's di don't have a parliamentary system -- >> you just said this word, i just saw jim demint this morning on another news program talk about, you know, no, you know, said no to the boehner plan and he's arguing against the boehner plan, campaigning against it. what do you tell folks who look up to jim demint in that republican conference of yours? >> well, first of all, i think the majority of our colleagues believe that it's important to give our leadership support, number one, number two, when people really stop to think of how far we have moved the discussion from raising taxes to only lifting the debt limit to being able to cut spending at the same rate, then they have to consider it as being quite successful, i think. but at the end of the day, i do believe that my colleagues think that the country has to come f
rates go up. credit cards, mortgage rates, auto loan rates. you mentioned august 3rd, that big social security payment? according to many republicans, unless we default on an actual debt we don't have to get our debt downgraded. according to s & p and ben bernanke, if you default on any payment you're supposed to make, even if it's not to a bond holder you could face that. >> republicans who say, look, i don't buy it's this big catastrophe waiting to hit after august 2nd. >> reporter: they absolutely could be right. but anderson, you and i were together on september 15, 2008 after they decided a lot of smart people decided to let lehman brothers fail thinking it's not that big of a deal. i don't know which way it's going to go. i don't know if we should be playing with fire like this. >> john, what do you make of jessica's reporting that she's hearing mitch mcconnell is wanting president obama to be at the table in any negotiations? >> as a couple of political reasons for that in the sense that then you can't cut a deal then the white house will say we're going to try this. to move th
new york, one person was killed. at least 20 injured in a fiery crash between a tour bus and big rig. the happened on interstate 90 early this morning. both vehicles caught fire. it appears a u.s. soldier helped somebody. authorities say he drove on the scene and pulled passengers out from the burning bus. one passenger claims the bus driver fell asleep. the accident is under investigation. >>> new numbers show more children are dying after being left in hot cars researchers say an air bag that urged children to -- parents to put children in the rear seats of the car worked very well. but they say it had the unintended consequence forgetting about their children. that's tushy because they are out of sight -- that's usually because any are out of sight -- they are out of sight. >>> it's 7:0. we want to check in with -- it's 7:08. right now we're looking at the the commute on highway 24 westbound coming up to the walnut creek area, la fayette and getting up to oakland. it's a nice drive all the way through the tunnel. this morning's commute is gonna be okay if you are driving in san fr
. the key sticking point is this issue of raising the debt limit, large enough, big enough, so that it gets us through 2012, gets us into the spring of 2013. right now, of course, the boehner bill and what republicans were supporting would have this debt limit come to another vote in the next -- >> at this point in time -- >> harry reid wants to do is simply figure out a way to satisfy the second round of deficit reduction, create a stronger trigger potentially, whatever he can come to, to get more republicans to support his way in order to get this debt limit passed 2012. i think he's going to come to an agreement. the question is, how big of an agreement is it? is it an agreement that barely gets the eight republicans he wants? or does it get 20 republicans and sends a strong, bipartisan message to make sure this thing doesn't get gummed up again in the house. >> does he have a dance partner in terms of a republican willing to negotiate? >> reporter: he's got a few dance partners potentially, but right now he's not working very well with mitch mcconnell. that's not clear. but don't be sur
out as quickly as we expected, and so that's continued to be a big drag on the economy. we've had to revamp our housing programs several times to try to help people stay in their homes and try to start lifting home values up, but of all the things we've done, that's probably been the area that's been most stubborn to us trying to solve the problem. >> mr. president, 27% of our questions are in the jobs category, as can you see from the screen over here. how next question has to do about jobs and technology. it comes from david. tech and knowledge industries are thriving, yet jobs discussion always centers on manufacturing. why not be realistic about jobs? >> it's not an either/or question. it's a both/and question. we have to be successful at the cutting edge industries of the future like twitter. but we also have always been a country that makes stuff, and manufacturing jobs end up having both higher wages typically, and they also have bigger multiplier effects, so one manufacturing job can support a range of other jobs, suppliers and restaurants near the plant and so forth so th
. a big bank or two fail. this causes a run on american money market funds which have exposure of about a trillion dollars to european banks. and we find ourselves very quickly back at a moment very much like 2008. do you find a scenario like this to be plausible? and if so, what has dodd-frank accomplished? >> maybe i can start and others can join in. first of all, i think it's a terrific and i think central important question. i do think there is real risk right now, as there has been for many months now, that crisis in europe hurts the -- not just the european banking sector but the u.s. banking sector and the u.s. financial sector. the money market fund system is still, i think, not fully resolved. that is i think the sec's changes under rule 287 that improve the liquidity position of money market funds is good. the bazzel liquidity rules that will kick into place for the banking sector are good and will help. the capital margin and collateral requirements in the repo sector will also help significantly. and weaknesses -- i'm sorry, the last i would point out the significant capital
and virginia is the big exception to this because they are the ones as john pointed out that established religious freedom, separation of church and state and so forth. if you look at these stasis constitutions and i don't have a political ax to grind, but it fascinates me that almost all of them have very, very specific religious christian, if not protestant qualifications for holding office so you have pennsylvania, for example, the most radical democratic constitution of them all, and in order to serve the government in pennsylvania, you have to uphold the devine inspiration of the old and new testaments. you know, you have to believe in a god. vermont is the one i love. 177 # -- 1776 constitution of the independence of vermont, now this bashing of liberalism, upholds the idea all people serving in government must believe in the inspiration of the devine old and new testaments, obey the sabbath, and be a protestant, catholics, jews, forget about it. they can't serve in government. it's referred to as a federalist argument; right? at what -- did the constitution leave religion out beca

a story saying that big mortgages are back. the financial times and its financial section has two stories of highlights, one talking about stress tests and you may have remembered those from a few years ago done in the united states to test the fiscal capabilities of u.s. banks. this takes a look at european banks. but the one story from new york this morning looks at city baverbing looking at their profits, surging 24% to $3.3 billion. city results mirrors jp morgan. we have been talking about the notion of comfroms when it comes to discussions about the debt and should congress members of the congress republicans primarily as far as these discussions go, and the president, compromise on their ideals when it comes to debt talks? all available for you to join us. e-mail and twitter as well. new jersey. go ahead. caller: good morning. i would just like to say that i wish that the congress would do like the president said and try to put aside their issues just this once. so that the country can be saved economically. i'm so tired of the posturing that they continue to do in the house of rep
the big fight's going going to be over the debt ceiling limit. that's where the hard negotiations are going to be put out. and then they will probably be given a new number, and they'll have to revisit that bill that they've worked on in committee and meet the new number. so if that's what happens, it's probably a good thing. host: so first things first. guest: look, here's what each department or each function of government is going to be getting, and then work out what you think you can get, the most bang for the buck, so to speak. host: let's get to calls for you. we're going to begin with a call from los angeles. michelle is a democrat there. you're on for david keating of the club for growth. caller: given that you made the comments about t republican candidate mitt romney has developed an unshakable reputation as a flip-flop per uses federal powers to coerce taxpayers, and tim pawlenty is hard to pin down, who do you like? guest: well, what the club for we haveohas been doing, published a series of white papers on many of the presidential candidates, all of those that have d
to be an american? not a big change when president obama came to office. what does that say to you? guest: remarkable continuity about something that is very important in defining this as a people. it does not seem to matter whether we have a democratic or republican president. we are patriotic nonetheless. host: james, pittsburg, republican line. caller: my comment is that you have to poll the younger crowd and they are the strongest and the fastest and most easily -- and it is easier for them to take in all the information they have take in. they are more alterable to become a soldier and not many of them are politically savvy. once they get into the war, they are generally -- most of the men i know that have come back especially from this war and from vietnam, they speak to the fact that they were fighting for its other. host: we will leave it there. guest: that is true. men who have had that experience in war talk about it that way. they also love their country. one of the things we see, it's a hard thing to take polls of soldiers because it's tough to do. but when you do, they are ve
in a very big and vital state of new york. >> most importantly, one, the white house says it's not true and secondly, biden himself, he's been the target of getting off a ticket since january of 2009. when hillary clinton was going to take it over and that would be the smart thing to do politically. as much as people might have strong feelings about vice president biden, i think that for president obama, he's been a good vice president. he marches his soldiers on. he does the bidding. and he -- i think there's no reason for it to change but also this, while i respect the reporter and i'm sure he's got good sources, i just don't see what changing courses mid stream and getting the governor from new york gets you >> you can tell how much the white house doesn't want to talk about something when they dump it out on a friday. according to the economic council of advisors, they've come out with their seventh quarterly report and what they said is the stimulus, remember, it was going to save us from big -- >> save or create three million jobs. >> it was going to do that. it didn't do that. o
